Step 3: Build the deck
Adding a small deck to the side of a storage shed really helps to integrate its appearance into the rest of the yard -- helps to keep it from simply looking like it "fell from the sky."
This deck is very simple. I made a "ladder" frame of 2x6 treated lumber and decked it with the same material.
I built this deck to run the length of the building, and extend 5 feet from the side. It's not large enough to hold a party on, but it is large enough to visually tie the building into the yard.
